I take the over, but not by much.  

I think the real question is team HR over/under 149.5.

My projections...
Inciarte - 5
Swanson - 12
Freeman - 30
Kemp - 40
Markakis - 12
Phillips/2B - 15
Garcia/3B - 15
Flowers/Suzuki - 10
Bench - 10

Makes you wonder if it's necessary (with Sean Rod's power gone) for us to see how cheap we can get Pedro Alvarez....could platoon at 3B with Adonis and allow Jace to be an actual super-sub instead of a platoon-mate. Could also answer our backup 1B problem. He hit 22 HR in only 337 AB last year and he's likely only gonna get a 1-year deal from someone.

Thinking out loud. Gives us short-term power and depth.

Apparently Alvarez  defense has got so bad he is just unplayable except for an occasional game at 1st.  I lean toward just giving Garcia the job and see what he does batting 6th everyday. If we see he needs the platoon partner turn to Rio after a couple months at Gwinnett. I like Garcia's bat more than I like Jaces bat as an everyday option.

Yeah I just was checking out his games at each position totals and didn't realize he's basically been non-existant at 3B since '14. Starting to backtrack on that idea now.

Rio/Garcia might be a more productive platoon. Hope Rio shows out this spring.

Lets see if Kemp can stay trim all season. Andruw used to come in looking like a stud, then he would be plump by seasons end. Life on the road can be hard to keep a workout routine though.

Didn't Andruw always come in 15 pounds heavier every year?
